Anybody care to explain why Ferrari has chosen to put the exhausts that high up, in comparison to the "regular" F430? I've noticed they've done it with the Enzo and FXX too. What exactly is the gain?

When they put it under the car the exhaust disrupts the airflow causing resistance and reducing the suction effect.
Edit: forgot to add: on the Mclaren F1 they put the exhaust up high because its part of the rear crash structure thus saving some weight because they can make the actual car a bit weaker.
