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.
Actually it's the exact opposite of what you said. The technical directives are pretty cut and dry. They fall under the technical regulations of F1. The Sporting Directives are a bit more loose.
