ESP faulty?

If the Stability programme is faulty in a Coupe, should a warning light or anything come on?

Recently I have had two occasions where the back end of the car has gone, and no light came on to say ESP had kicked in or anything?
So...i am assuming that either the car figured out that there wasn't an issue in the first place and it wasn't going to do anything, or the ESP isn't working.

I must admit though that when the back end went out, i was too busy concentrating on the road and cars around me rather than looking to see whether a light came on.

Probably not the answer you want to hear but,

It's probably safer to drive with the MSP off, if you lose control you should know how to react to the situation better than a traction control system. Just my $0.02 but invest a weekend into going to a racing school and learning how to properly handle a car and you'll feel much safer on the roads. Perfect example, last weekend on the way home from work I had to kick the rear end out and barely dodged a deer by about 5ft. had I had traction control on the car would have corrected itself and I wouldn't be making this post right now.
