As soon as they realised he didn't have enough fuel on board they could have aborted and brought him in. That may not have put them on pole, but at least it would not relegate him to the back of the field. They wanted to let him finish his flying lap despite knowing it would lead to a rule-breaching situation and for that reason I think the punishment is adequate.
