The FIA went and oversaw, among a number of cars, Hamilton. The entity assessed that the seven-time champion’s car was in fact in violation of the rules set for the movable wing and sent the question to the commissioners.
Joe Bauer, technical delegate responsible for overseeing inspections of all cars after weekend activities, explained in the document that Hamilton’s car was above the maximum wing opening, which increases the car’s power when using the DRS.

The article relates to Parc Fermé rules and says that “only authorized personnel may enter” into that area – this already includes the area where the top three in session park their cars – and that “no operation, inspection, modification or repair is permitted unless authorized by It’s the same staff.”
Hence, Verstappen will have to justify why he touched his car and Hamilton’s as seen in the Federico Montero video. That is why the FIA will need either more pictures or sufficient justification to apply the ruling in the Lewis case. Or, in the end, punish Verstappen, too.
