Seems a bit harsh, I would have though one option would be to exclude him from Q3. But then again, the rule applies to the whole Q session so in reality that was probably not an option. If you read the article it is a pretty clear decision really and there's not much to object to. It was probably right of them to stop on track though, because not providing any fuel for sampling at all would probably be considered a lot worse. Unfortunate, and another mistake from McLaren but as far as the FIA goes it seems they have called it correctly. I'd think the "Force Majeure" defense was a bit of a longshot from Whitmarsh & co and they're probably not really surprised in didn't work.
