Default Two beeps when downshifting into second

I've noticed that when I downshift into second gear, either going down a hill to augment braking, or setting up to take a corner quickly, I will occasionally hear two quick beeps (in the cabin) which are not very loud. This seems to happen when I'm using the paddles to downshift.

I assume that this is some sort of driver's aid, but for the life of me, I can't figure out what it's for.

Has anyone else noticed this?

TIA

Two quick beeps means at the moment of speed and rpm are too high which is not allow u to downshift, so the car just give u two beeps of warning!

It lets you downshift all the way to redline in all gears except for the first which won't downshift unless the RPM's are less 3500 or less. Not sure why this is.
