Absolutely, the traction / braking / ESP cuts in a lot without the yellow triangle.

The triangle only shows for continued major transgretions, ham fisted efforts etc.

I.e. if the triangle shows then you are continuing to overdo it, that's when you need the warning.

Minor or short duration excesses are reined in with no warning.

That's why, in more powerful models like 335s anyway, its better to drive with DTC on (short press), try it, its like a new car......
