Notes

  • After the introduction of wings on an F1 car by Lotus at the previous race, the 1968 Monaco Grand Prix, this innovation was adopted by Ferrari and Brabham. Ferrari added wings to their lead driver Chris Amon's car[2] and he nabbed pole position, and was 4 seconds faster in qualifying than the next fastest car of Jackie Stewart. Amon's teammate Jacky Ickx did not have wings on his car.[3] The Brabham team also fitted a rear wing to Jack Brabham's car, paired with dive planes on the nose to counteract lift; he qualified 10th.[4] Wings were added to Ickx's car (and many other teams copied the idea for their cars) for the next race at Zandvoort.
  • On the seventh lap Brian Redman went off the circuit when his suspension failed and he crashed into and over a concrete barrier and into a parked car. His Cooper caught fire but Redman escaped with a severely broken right arm and a few minor burns.
