Race summary

After Monaco,there were some new faces. Brian Redman retired from Formula One, to be replaced by Bertil Roos whilst Reine Wisell took over at March from Hans-Joachim Stuck and Leo Kinnunen made his début.

The two Tyrrells of Depailler and Scheckter sewed up the front row and dominated the race. Ronnie Peterson retired on lap 8 with driveshaft failure, shortly to be followed by Clay Regazzoni with gearbox problems. Niki Lauda and James Hunt had a superb duel for 20 laps before Hunt got past on lap 66 and began slicing into the Tyrrells' lead at 2 seconds a lap. In the end,Scheckter held on to take his first race win by 0.38s and Hesketh gained a superb podium - their first Formula One points. Graham Hill gained his first championship point since 1972 whilst Tom Belsø drove magnificently to 8th place.
