Notes[edit]

  • Pole position: John Surtees - 2:25.56
  • Fastest Lap: John Surtees - 2:27.53
  • Because many British teams pulled out of the Italian Grand Prix, Brabham won the World Championship here.
  • This was to be the last Portuguese Grand Prix until 1984.
  • Stirling Moss was disqualified by the officials because he drove against the direction of the race while trying to get going after a spin.
