English translation:Di Grassi was weaving in front of Hamilton
Explanation:


Hamilton was already in 9th position after 5 laps, and got into a fight with Renault's Vitaly Petrov who was sometimes behind, and sometimes in front of him. Hamilton ***was weaving*** across the track to defend his position, and after the Renault team had reported this to race control, Hamilton got a warning.

Lap 25: Massa is told by his radio that it is the last corner which is causing him problems.
Lap 24: Massa ***weaves*** dangerously in front of Webber heading into Turn 11 and 12. That Ferrari is not happy. Vettel leads Button by 4.3 seconds.
Lap 22: And so it passes, Hamilton takes Massa on the inside at Turn One but loses a bit of his front wing on the pit straight.

As Hamilton and Petrov entered the braking zone for Turn 1, the Mclaren driver held and stayed on the inside line (and ceased weaving in front of Petrov), as is widely held to be the unwritten agreement regarding weaving in the braking zone (a la Felipe Massa at Turn 12 in Melbourne).
