There were two entries from each of Lotus, Shadow, Surtees and Williams; three from each of Tyrrell, McLaren, Brabham and BRM; and one from each of Ferrari. March and Ensign. The three privateers were Embassy Racing with Hill's Shadow, Space Racing with the stockbroker March 731, and Hesketh Racing with their March 731 for Hunt, bringing the total to 26. Jarier's works March was the car previously hired by Lec. Jody Scheckter was in the spare McLaren, and Patrick Depailler would have been driving the usual spare Tyrrell but had broken his leg competing on a trials motorbike. Chris Amon was delighted to be able to take over the Tyrrell. The only spare car was Peterson's Lotus 72D, so there were 27 cars for 26 entries.

Gethin had replaced Regazzoni at BRM, as Regazzoni had been too critical of BRM management, and this replacement had not been well received by team sponsor Marlboro. With title sponsors becoming increasingly important, it was curious to see Louis Stanley putting so much effort into irritating Marlboro, and this only strengthened the belief that Stanley already knew Marlboro would be moving to McLaren. He may also have been aware that both Regazzoni and Lauda would be leaving BRM for Ferrari. A "rumour" was spread that BRM would be sponsored in 1974 by a "large British airline", this being a reference to the new British Airways, created by a government-enforced merger of British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC) and British European Airway, but it turned out to be pure fiction. Stanley's high-handed nature was starting to become a real problem for BRM.
