Sometimes starting in 1st gear, sometimes in 2nd gear

Hi Everybody,

When I drive my M6 convertible (F12) in the D mode (automatic gear change) and stop at a traffic light or speed bump, it sometimes goes back to 1st gear and other times back to 2nd gear. I tried to find out but can't find a pattern, it is just always the question if it will start in 1st or 2nd gear, also no difference in D1, D2 or D3. Does anybody know why? And is it possible to program the transmission so the car will always take-off in 1st gear. In my opinion it doesn't feel very good for the clutch when starting this 2000 kg car in his 2nd gear.

Many thanks for your reply!
