Notes[edit]

  • Lauda completed just 73 laps but was allowed an extra lap after the team protested his exit from the pit lane was blocked after a late wheel change. He initially classified ninth, but was awarded fifth place after appeal
  • Lombardi used number 208 because her car was sponsored by Radio Luxembourg, who wavelength was 208 metres (equivalent to a frequency of 1439 kHz).[3]

Standings after the race[edit]

  • Note: Only the top five positions are included for both sets of standings. Only the best 7 results from the first 8 races and the best 6 results from the last 7 races counted towards the Championship. Numbers without parentheses are Championship points; numbers in parentheses are total points scored.
