Bmw F10 can't change gear

Hi guys, I have a question I parked my car and started to turn my engine on. And i tried to change gear from Park (P) to drive (D) but it won't change. There is no warning lights or anything. Tried to change to reverse or neutral but it didn't work either. I had to turn the engine off and start it again and it worked normally after that. Happened to me twice. My car is F10 528 2013.

Thanks guys

Did you get a warning, like you either didn't apply the brake or press the lock button on the side of the shift lever? Sounds like the start of an issue with the electronic selector.

Nope I did not get a warning at all. It just could not shift to drive. What is an electronic selector? I still have warranty on the car, is this a major thing or should I bring it to a bmw service center?

I meant "electronic" gear shift, there are no actual cables or connections to the transmission as older shift methods.
