Notes

  • Pole position: Ronnie Peterson - 1:13.697
  • Fastest lap: Emerson Fittipaldi - 1:15.496
  • This Grand Prix saw the first ever use of a safety car in Formula One.[1] The safety car stayed in front of Howden Ganley's Iso-Marlboro car by mistake, which allowed several drivers, including eventual winner Peter Revson, to gain a lap on the field.[2]
