Mercedes boss Toto Wolff has admitted that he is tired of dealing with the fall-out from on-track clashes between Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg.

The German team are dominating the championship again, but Hamilton and Rosberg have clashed three times already.

And Wolff is worried any further incidents could lead to long-term repercussions.

"I look back at the first half of the season as a positive half because as you said, winning almost every race is definitely what we have hoped to achieve," he said.

"The controversies and rivalries are certainly something that is not always easy to manage. We accept that, and we acknowledge that it is something which comes from the fact we have two number one drivers who are provided equal material and equal opportunity.

"But it consumes a lot of our time, and that could have an affect long-term. On a positive note, as long as it doesn't happen every race weekend, it has provided some of the narrative of this year's championship.

"My feelings are clear. I would rather avoid it, and avoid some of the headlines, and rather win the races – but I guess we are in the entertainment industry."
