After looking at the footage.

I think reprimand for both Alonso and Webber is justified.
It just happens to be Webber's third reprimand. Thus the grid penalty.

Perhaps if the footage didn't show any cars (Mercs) dodging and had to execute evasive meanouver. They might be able to get away with just a fine.
