NotesEdit

  • First win: Keke Rosberg.
  • First win by a Finnish driver.
  • Patrick Tambay, Ferrari's only entry after team leader Didier Pironi's career-ending crash three weeks earlier, was unable to start due to a pinched nerve in his back.[2] This was the last of only three times Ferrari team did not start a World Championship race in which they entered (see also 1950 French Grand Prix and 1982 Belgian Grand Prix). Ferrari withdrew their entry so late that Chico Serra was not allowed to start as the reserve driver.[3]
  • The chequered flag was shown after 81 laps when the organizers / flag stand missed the leading car on lap 80.[4]
