The entry started with the same 23 as at Monaco: two cars from each of Tyrrell, Lotus, Matra, Surtees, Brabham, McLaren; plus three from Ferrari, BRM and March; and a single entries from Gene Mason Racing and Frank Williams. The additional entries at this race were third cars from Lotus for Dave Walker and Surtees for Gijs van Lennep, for a total of 25. Walker was trying out the turbine Lotus 56B and Dave Charlton would have driven a Lotus 72 had Walker not crashed it in practice. Emerson Fittipaldi was nursing broken ribs from a road accident. After Hill's accident at Monte Carlo, MRD had prepared BT33/3, just in case the BT34 could not be repaired in time. Schenken tested BT33/3 and prefered it to his regular BT33/1, so took it over for the rest of the season. There were more T cars than usual at Zandvoort: Ferrari had two 312Bs to support the three 312B2s, Stewart had Tyrrell 001 as usual, Rodriguez had the new narrower third P160, Peterson had a new 711-Alfa, and Amon had his usual spare MS120B, so there were 31 cars in the paddock. Amon's spare MS120B-06 had the new MS71 engine for the first time, but he raced MS120B-04 with the MS12. The Belgian GP was cancelled this year as the organising RACB were still at loggerheads with Bonnier and Stewart of the GPDA over the safety of the Spa circuit. Jenks took a page of Motor Sport (July 1971 p667) to express his opinion that true racing drivers should accept the risk of death or serious injury, but this time was a little more measured in his comments about Stewart. Spa would not be used again for F1 until it was completely remodelled in 1979.
