Default engine cranks - but no fire 407

Hi folks. Running my 2005 407 sw in the snowy roads of Reykjavik, brings me to believe that the pug is just an awesome car in winter condition. But I had probs with starting the engine again after some 40+ min driving. Had to wait for ca 40-50 min until it cooled down and then the old girl would fire up. Thougt it was the CMP sensor and got it replaced, but not too convinced of my diagnosis. It cranks and no problem but if engine is warm - no fire until engine heat is down to 50C. Any thoughts? Cheers.

A related story.
A few years back I had a Rover 400, with the T series 2.0 petrol (get that mentioned before the K series jokes )
The coolant temp sensor went on it, so the fan didn't kick in.
It used to get really hot, and would either not start for 10 minutes, or slowly churn away and fire up.
I replaced the thermostat, coolant temp sensor and the coolant. Job done, no hot running or starting issues. I later learned electrical resistance increases with temperature. So it must have been heating the starter up and making it struggle to work. Luckily it didn't totally bugger the starter.
So, either you're having issues like I had, or something else

get your starter checked, some of them get lazy, especially when warm
