Notes

  • Pole position: James Hunt - 1:35.02[1]
  • Fastest lap: James Hunt - 1:35.91[2]
  • This race was the only major F1 and European victory for Penske Racing. It was a poignant win for the team, coming a year after the death of their former driver Mark Donohue at the same circuit the previous season. Roger Penske withdrew the team at the end of year to refocus on IndyCar racing.
