As long as the car is performing well, dont bother too much.

As much as possible try to maintain momentum and lower gears, before approaching steep climbs in order to avoid any stalling, gear changes etc in the middle.

Hi Ravveendrra, I did check if that was the issue but the handbrake was fully disengaged.
