The culprit was not the handbrake in the end. Because of it reluctance to pull smartly away at times I assumed (wrongly) it was down to the handbrake.
It turns out it is due to one of the environmental things that these have now. Some valve (not the turbo dump valve) kept sticking. In the end it got very bad and went for repair. A year later it is back to what it was like originally!
If I want to pull away quick I now just hold the Auto vehicle on the foot brake with the left foot and keep the revs up ready to shoot off.

Currently in follies's garage:
Espace Mk4 2.2dci
