Yep they certainly were. It was to do with a illegal fuel cell thingy - which gave the car incorrect weights when weighed ..

They used a liquid ballast, that is they used fuel to make the car heavier to meet the 600kg weight minimum which is illegal because only solid ballasts are allowed and also because we can't know for certain that the fuel was used as weight for the whole GP, maybe it was burnt off making the car underweight for a few laps and then replaced later on in a pit stop...

They wouldn't be punished if car didn't go under 600kilos. Car had about 596,5 after race if my memory backs me. Yellow_Colorz_PDT_08

In fact the car weighed above 600kg after the race just until the FIA guys found those extra fuel tanks inside the normal tanks and asked to drain them too (the cars are weighed w/o fuel). But then BAR claimed that the limited amount of fuel is necessary AT ALL TIMES to keep their 'fancy fuel system' working and keep the engine from stalling, and that the cars never went below 600kg throughout the course of the race, but there was nothing to prove that statement...
On the basis that the car could theoretically weight below 600kg during the race FIA imposed their DQ.

I hope my explanation was good enough.
