Q: Why does the starter run on without the engine catching on the first try? on 1998 Mercedes-Benz E320

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
On first try starting the car the starter motor runs on without the engine catching. When I turn it off the engine catches normally on the second try with very little starter motor action.
