That would be the ASR kicking in, you should see that caution light come on when it happens. The cars basically trying to correct itself. Unless you were breaking, it might be your ABS kicking in.
Oh and one more thing for everyone, ESP and ASR do two totally different things:
ASR: car detects front wheel spin, engine reduces power and torque to reduce condition and keep you going.
ESP: Car detects front wheel spin, ABS activates on spinning wheel to transfer power to other wheel. Also, if car decides to go in a direction other than indicated by steering wheel direction ABS activates on a specific wheel to re-stabilize the car.
Fun fact of the day haha.
