I posted this in another thread, but since you asked in this thread...

There is a huge difference between parking it on track after the race vs qualifying.

Once the checkered flag drops, the race is over, no one is going at full throttle after they cross the finish line.

During qualifying, if drivers started fueling for 2 laps only, you could have a bunch of cars parking on track while another bunch are beginning their timed laps. This is OBVIOUSLY a very dangerous situation - thus the rule.
