Carlos Reutemann in the latest Brabham (bottom left) with the air box flapping loose in the closing stages of the race. To the great consternation of the exuberant crowd, the popular Argentinian retired on the last but one lap, after leading almost from the start. (Above) Mike Hailwood in the Yardley McLaren leading Carlos Pace in the Surtees, with Ronnie Peterson’s Lotus behind. (Right) Niki Lauda in the new Ferrari came home to a very creditable second place. (Below) John Watson in the brown Brabham entered and prepared by Hexagon of Highgate.
