SPANISH GRAND PRIX

BACK ON TOP is Stewart in the Tyrrell. Here at the Montjuich hairpin he takes his brand new car in ahead of Regazzoni’s

Ferrari (No. 5), Amon’s Matra (No. 20) and the rest of the field with the back-markers breasting the rise where the Lotus 49s of Rindt and Hill crashed when their aerofoils collapsed in the 1969 race. The picturesque circuit is lined with Armco barrier.

THE COMBINATION of Chris Amon and the latest Matra MS120B is proving competitive in World Championship races but has yet to look like winning. At Barcelona Matra Sports were back with a full two-car team now that Jean-Pierre Beltoise has had his racing licence returned. Both cars proved reliable with Amon finishing third and Beltoise seventh.

SWOOPING DOWN the Montjuich Park in the early stages Ickx’s Ferrari (No. 4) leads Stewart’s Tyrrell (No. 11) and Amon in the Matra. Stewart soon found a way round Ickx and went on to win.

CONSISTENTLY FAST.—The McLaren team find that the new rising rate suspension M19 is rather difficult to set up for different circuit characteristics. However despite practice problems Denny Hulme went well to finish fourth in the car.

THE FERRARI 312B/2 was practised by Regazzoni at Barcelona but was not raced. This close-up shows the interesting lay-out for the inboard horizontally mounted rear spring/damper units.

MARIO AN DRETTI was out of luck in the second round of the World Championship, for both his and Regazzoni’s Ferraris suffered from fuel pump failure resulting in small fires. Andretti in Ferrari No. 6 heads Beltoise’s Matra and Hu!me’s McLaren.
