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 23 Apr 1970 pp8-15 (report by Patrick McNally). Motor Sport May 1970 pp448-449,452 and 'Notes on the Cars' on p452. Motoring News 23 Apr 1970 p14-17 (report by ARM, Andrew Marriott). Sport Auto Juin 1970 pp56-64, including 'Les Voitures en Course' (by GĂ©rard "Jabby" Crombac). Autocar 23 Apr 1970 pp2-5 (by Edward Eves). Motor 25 Apr 1970 pp38-41 (by Philip Turner). The Motor Racing Year No 2 p43-49 (by Anthony Pritchard). Autosport had Alan Phillips' two pages of race data, as it would throughout the whole of the 1970s. Motor Sport gave chassis numbers on the grid, including the four non-qualifiers, in Jenks' 'Notes on the Cars'. Sport Auto gave chassis numbers only in Crombac's 'Les Voitures en Course', where he also gave detail of tyre compounds being used. Autocar identified most of the cars in the report. Motor gave useful technical data but did not mention chassis numbers.

The entry was largely as in South Africa, with two Brabham BT33s, two McLaren M14As, two Lotuses, two Tyrrell-March 701s, two works 701s, two Matra MS120s, three BRMs, a single Ferrari and the De Tomaso. McLaren brought a third entry, the McLaren M7D with Alfa Romeo engine for Andrea de Adamich, and Lotus brought a 49C for Alex Soler-Roig, but neither of these qualified. The privateers were the Walker Lotus 49C for Hill, John Surtees' McLaren M7C and STP's March for Andretti. Of the 24 entries, 22 turned up, the DNA's being Pete Lovely's Lotus 49B and an unknown BRM for the little-known Werner Bickel entered by 'UTA Racing Organisation'. Spare March 701s were present for Stewart and Amon, a spare Ferrari for Ickx and a backup 49C for the Lotus team. The latest March had a monocoque fabricated from 20 gauge aluminium sheet instead of the normal 18 gauge (0.9mm thick instead of 12mm), a saving of 20 lb, inboard rear brakes and revised rear suspension. All but the Tyrrell spare 701 and STP's 701 had been updated to the new rear suspension. The Brabham BT33, McLaren M14A and March 701 took the three front-row positions on the grid, reflecting their dominance of the season so far, as the new Lotus 72 struggled. The radical new Lotus had a low wide monocoque, side radiators, a chisel nose and entirely new suspension, and would finally bring to an end the "cigar tube" school of racing car design.

Motoring News noted that Bruce McLaren's M14A was the third one built but retained chassis number 1. MN also said that Beltoise' Matra was still MS120/1, having been "straightened" since his accident at Brands Hatch, although Matra would later reveal that this had been a new car, travelling on the carnet of MS120/1.
