147 t-spark startup noise - Please help

Please can someone help diagnose the noise I am getting when starting up my 147 hot or cold.
I thought it was the variator based on searches on here. It sounds like the starter motor is still engaged or something when you start the car, the noise continues for a couple of seconds only on startup. The car is running fine otherwise its just this embarrasssing grinding noise on startup. Any suggestions welcome, video link attached:-
