... and then it dies.

Occasionally after a drive (cambiocorsa Spyder), when I engage reverse the engine dies. Off, on, restart and neutral and select R then all is good. I think that pre lockdown it did this sometimes engaging 1 as well. Just often enough to be mildly annoying; usually happens manoeuvring while stopping traffic☹

Any ideas?

Annoying safety feature disengages gear if we open a door to look while reversing. Who do we blame for this?

Pretty sure an open door, bonnet or boot puts the car into neutral by design
It does and is equally
annoying - reversing in open field
+ useful. reversing into garage with door open . Setting off with bonnet partially open
