The race returned to the Nürburgring after a year at the Hockenheimring after the safety was improved on the track. The race distance was shortened to 12 laps. Notable driver changes included Vic Elford, who replaced Pedro Rodríguez. Jackie Stewart took pole and dominated the race, leading home a Tyrrell 1-2. Clay Regazzoni finished third with Mario Andretti, Ronnie Peterson and Tim Schenken rounding out the points. Mike Beuttler was disqualified on the third lap after entering the pits via the "short chute", after suffering a flat tire just after passing the pits, and not wanting to drive 14 miles on a flat tire. Jo Siffert was also disqualified on lap seven for taking the short chute into the pits, after his right-hand lower front wishbone started detaching from the chassis and his ignition coil started acting up.
