on my 360F1 (2002) I had the same experience when I took the car out after 2 weeks non-driving. In the first minute, the engine was not running normally and it was diffucult to get out of the garage..i've got the stop-and-go's you've described. But already after 50m it was over. It was not that cold...7-8C.

But it's very possible that all the power, electronics etc. has to heat up but I did not had to wait 10min.

BTW...what the hell do you take your car out on that kind of weather ? I hope it was NOT snowing...I know it has that special traction control but I hope I will never use it..Driving 400hp on ice or snow...brrrr.a nightmare

Putting my 550 into first or second is always a bear until I have a few miles on it. There is nothing which heat the transmission oil except the fiction of use. Let the engine warm for an hour and the trany oil is still cold. Until it warms, no Ferrari likes to shift.
