F1 controversy as Red Bull Racing fights disqualification from Melbourne Grand Prix

During the F1 race in Melbourne, the Red Bull Racing Team won the race. However they were disqualified shortly after by officials for using too much fuel. The rules state that no more than 100Kgs of fuel can be used per hour. The Red Bull team is protesting saying that the fuel flow meter installed by race officials was faulty. In the end only the Red Bull team really knows the truth. The Red Bull team is the only ones who know for sure if they used more than the maximum limit of fuel during a point in the race. They have an ethical responsibility to tell the truth. If the fuel flow meter used was properly calibrated and can be shown to be accurate after the fact, then I feel the disqualification was merited and should stand.
