The 1997 Luxembourg Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held at Nürburgring on September 28, 1997. Jacques Villeneuve took what proved to be his final Formula One victory, after the race-leading McLaren-Mercedes cars had identical engine failures within moments of each other. This was the third time Mika Häkkinen had retired from the lead due to a technical problem this season, and occurred on his birthday. Rubens Barrichello also lost a potential podium due to a mechanical failure.

Olivier Panis scored a point on his first race back from breaking his legs at the Canadian Grand Prix.
