I agree with Horner, it warranted a disqualification.
What people dont seem to understand, is that Ferrari breached a technical directive, not a sporting regulation. A technical directive is "a guidance, a procedure to help the FIA communicated with the teams as to how they are supposed to interpret the rules." Not following a technical directive doesn't mean you broke the rules.

Additionally, Ferrari were able to prove that the car had the same amount of fuel left over after the race as they had overfilled before the start. They did this by draining the tank after the race. As such, there was no advantage gained.
