MERCEDES team chief Toto Wolff revealed he had told warring teammates Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton to avoid a collision in yesterday’s Mexican Grand Prix won from pole position by the 30-year-old German. Wolff said the drivers were made “absolutely aware” of how to behave before the race in which newlycrown­ed world champion Hamilton resisted any temptation to mount a wheel-banging challenge to Rosberg, as he did at the first corner of the United States Grand prix in Texas seven days earlier. “We have had the conversati­on about Turn One. It doesn’t need to be dragged out in the media because I’m not the headmaster. They are the two best drivers out there. At a certain stage, responsibi­lity needs to be in their hands. Sometimes it’s harder, sometimes it’s trickier for us, but the rule remains the same – we don’t need controvers­y in team, we don’t need tension.”
