3-litre Formula 1 World Championship events 1966-1985

These 1966 to 1985 results were initially compiled by Allen Brown, but these were in the very basic form required to track individual car histories. Since then further details, such as laps completed, qualifying times and so on, have been added from Rob Ryder's extensive database.

Individual sources for this event

Autosport 25 Jun 1970 pp8-15 (report by Patrick McNally). Motor Sport August 1970 pp850-853 (report by DSJ). Motoring News 25 Jun 1970 pp12-15 (report by MGD, Mike Doodson). Sport Auto Aout 1970 pp14-20, including 'Les Voitures en Course' (by José Rosinsky). Motor 27 Jun 1970 pp56-59 (by Philip Turner). Autocar 25 Jun 1970 pages A2-A5 (by Ray Hutton). The Motor Racing Year No 2 p63-70 (by Anthony Pritchard). Motoring News gave chassis numbers on the grid and on the Practice Times listing, but omitted information on the non-qualifiers. MGD's 'A Look Round The Paddock' gave some additional info. Motor Sport also gave information in both the Practice Times table and on the grid, but included the non-qualifiers. Rosinsky in Sport Auto was somewhat less interested in chassis numbers than Gerard Crombac, but identified the key changes since the previous race. Ray Hutton in Autocar continued to give chassis numbers on the grid, including non-qualifiers, but Motor was still not interested in this aspect of reporting.

The two-car works teams were Lotus, STP-March, Tyrrell-March, with Cevert taking Servoz-Gavin's seat, Brabham, Ferrari, with Regazzoni as No 2 this time, and Matra. BRM were back up to three cars, and McLaren also had three cars, with Gurney in Bruce's car and Gethin in Hulme's, plus de Adamich in a newly constructed M14D to house the Alfa Romeo engine. Williams had two De Tomasos for Courage, and Moser was present with the smartly turned out Bellasi, making Bellasi the 14th 3-litre F1 constructor. The other privateers were Rob Walker with a Lotus 49C, John Surtees with his McLaren M7C, Colin Crabbe's March 701 and Pete Lovely with a Lotus 49B, bringing the total to 24 entries. The STP March 701 for Andretti did not arrive as it was being rebuilt at the Granatelli workshop in the US; Tom Wheatcroft's Brabham BT26A also didn't show, and there was no third Lotus for Soler-Roig. The identity of numbers 7, 11, 17 and 27 on the entry list were not explained.

As well as the spare De Tomaso, there was a spare BRM P153 for Rodriguez, which was needed when he wrecked his Spa winner, Stewart had a spare March 701, there was a third STP March 701 in the truck, although Autosport did not notice this, and Ferrari brought a third 312B. Franco Gozzi had disappeared from the Ferrari team, and Mauro Forgieri was "now in complete control".
