F1 gear box

I have a question to all the F430 drivers and mayby all drivers with a F1 gear-
Starting the car in a garage and climbing up the hill of the exit, creates a problem with the traction. You need to run up the engine.
The gear-box creates a lot of smoke.
Same problem driving up a hill backwords.
Who can help me ?

What color is the smoke ?

Are you allowing the car to warm up before heading off ?

It is a stincky, white smoke.
Indeed the car is in these cases not warm enough.
When you're in a hotel in an underground parking, it is difficult to warm up the car.
But even when the car is warm, a serious hill, entrance of a park-building is difficult to take.
I heard the same from an Aston Martin Vanquish driver.
