One 2002 Starts On 5th/6th Attempt

Hello
Recently , I'm having some problems with my 2002 Mini One :
After turning the switch on and waiting for the lights to turn off (as I always do)
when turning the key forward for ignition - nothing happens = no starter action.
I need to turn the key back all the way , and then try turning the car 4/5 times till it "catches" and the car cranks .
The cranking sound and the starter sound both healthy and no "weirdness" in them.
What should I check ? Key? Immobilizer? Starter?
(battery is 6 months old)
Thanks

New Battery required
Mine did the same thing and replaced battery and it worked.

Its not creating enough current for the spark, ecu etc
