Sporadic non starting AR 156 1.8 TS

Dear all,
sometimes it happens, after a while of driving, that my AR156 1.8 TS will not start again. Just a click is heard, but it does not start the engine, even not cranking. After 5-10 mins of waiting, it starts normaly again. This happens once per 20 startings. What's wrong?

Check electrical connections to Battery terminals and to the starter motor. Tight nuts work best

Like BB says, or it could be that the starter motor is startig to fail (bet that cheered you up!)
