Brazilian Grand Prix - second practice Fri 9 Nov, The starting grid included seven American drivers, but New Zealand's Bruce McLaren , in a Cooper , took his first win in F1 and was, at the time, the youngest driver ever to win a Grand Prix.
McLaren took the lead on the last lap of the race when his team-mate, Jack Brabham , ran out of fuel.
Brabham had to push his car over the line to finish fourth. By virtue of Ferrari 's Tony Brooks finishing third, Brabham and Cooper took the Drivers' and Constructors' championships, respectively.
When prize money checks bounced, Charles Moran and Briggs Cunningham paid the money to save face for their country.
Stirling Moss put on quite a show in his privately entered Lotus by winning from pole position. However, while the driver's purse was enormous as at Sebring , the event was no better received than the previous year's due to a lack of promotion, and proximity to the successful Times Grand Prix.
Over this time, the event became a tradition among the fans as loyal crowds gathered each autumn on the spread out hills of Upstate New York.
It was one of the season's most popular events with the teams and drivers as well, receiving the Grand Prix Drivers' Association award for the best organized and best staged Grand Prix of the season in , , and The isolated, very peaceful and quiet location of the track gave it a vacation-type atmosphere it was and is at least 2 and a half hours from a major city in every direction, Buffalo was the closest city to Watkins Glen and the track was 4 and a half hours from New York City and Philadelphia and there was often a festive atmosphere that celebrated the end of each season of Formula One that included the Glen on its calendar- and because the race was held in early October, these races were set against the beautiful changing tree leaves, making the very scenic landscape of upstate New York even more so.
Watkins Glen has the longest hosting record of any American Formula One race in history; the considerably challenging track became known as the "Mecca" of American road racing and it eventually wove itself into European Grand Prix racing culture.
Watkins Glen had hosted a series of Formula Libre events that attracted international entries. Argetsinger assembled the field, but was unable to convince Scuderia Ferrari to make the trip, leaving Richie Ginther and recently crowned World Champion Phil Hill out of their home Grand Prix.
Stirling Moss , in his final Grand Prix, retired with engine problems. Unlike the previous two races, the race was well attended over 60, and turned a profit.
The Watkins Glen circuit had similarities to the British Brands Hatch circuit, in that a number of corners were banked and very fast and that the circuit was located in a very green part of the world.
Hill's win was crucial to him as he carried a points advantage into the next and final race in Mexico.
Clark dominated the event, leading comfortably from his teammate Hill and American Dan Gurney in an Eagle. In Mario Andretti put his Lotus 49 on pole position in his first ever Formula One race on a track he had never seen before.
Austrian Jochen Rindt won in — his first Formula One race. He took advantage of Stewart's mechanical problems to pull a huge gap out on the rest of the field.
Graham Hill had a much worse day, however. He punctured his car's rear right tire and the rubber came off the rim.
The rubber exploded, sending Hill's Lotus cartwheeling off the course, and Hill was thrown out of the car at a very awkward angle, breaking both legs.
Lotus had not run the Canadian Grand Prix, but because the next closest championship contender Jacky Ickx did not score enough points to keep him in contention, the Drivers' Championship was won by Rindt posthumously at this race.
Team Lotus also won the Constructors' Championship at the event. In , the course was changed considerably. The entire lower section of the track was torn up and re-drawn, and there was a whole new "boot" section which added more than a mile to the course, lengthening it to 3.
It also saw a new pitlane and pit straight and three new corners a new first, second-to last and last corners. Watkins Glen had been transformed from a quick, small circuit into a fast, scenic and very tough up-and-down circuit where just about every corner was banked and long; uncommonly hard driving and maximum effort was required for almost every part of a lap.
Cevert made it a Tyrrell 1—2. The race was at this point attracting lots of entries; 30 drivers entered and qualified for the race.
But from to , the event reached its probable low. The Grand Prix was to become a memorable event for all the wrong reasons. Stewart, unknown to almost everyone even his wife Helen had planned to retire after this race.
He had already won his third Drivers' Championship two races previously at Monza and he would be running his th and final Grand Prix.
But during qualifying, Stewart's teammate and friend Cevert was killed. Going into the nearly flat out uphill Esses, Cevert went into the first right-hander too fast, clipped the steep curb on the left hand side, lost control, hit Watkins Glen's trademark sky blue Armco on the right side which on both sides was and still is situated right next to the track and then the Tyrrell started to spin uncontrollably.
The car vaulted and went over the barriers. The barriers cut Cevert in half and he was killed instantly. The Tyrrell was completely destroyed and the right rear tire was sticking over the Armco barriers.
South African driver Jody Scheckter tried to get him out- but it was no use; Cevert was so clearly dead.
The marshals just left Cevert in the car and threw a cover over the cockpit. A distraught Stewart and his team's manager Ken Tyrrell withdrew the team, handing the Constructors' Championship to Lotus.
The illustrious Scotsman never raced competitively again. The race, however, was an exciting one. American Peter Revson finished fifth at his home race at his home track.
Both drivers had the same number of points and Regazzoni, driving a Ferrari, ran into a host of problems during the race and finished out of the points.
Fittipaldi finished fifth which won him his second Drivers' Championship. The event was marred by yet another fatal accident. The young Austrian Helmut Koinigg crashed at the fast, long Outer Loop corner, the bend after the extended back straight on Lap Koinigg's Surtees went straight on and the car went under the barriers and decapitated Koinigg, killing him instantly.
The race however, was a politically charged event. Regazzoni held up Fittipaldi's second placed McLaren for six laps to try to help his teammate and leader of the race Niki Lauda get ahead; Fittipaldi eventually lapped the Swiss.
The thin and wiry Montezemolo actually got into a bit of a scuffle with the large Martin; and Montezemolo withdrew Regazzoni in protest.
It was not a complete disaster for Ferrari- Austrian and recently crowned Drivers' Champion Lauda went on to win from Fittipaldi. At this point, Hunt was only three points behind Lauda for the final race at Fuji, Japan.
The race also saw Jacky Ickx crash hugely at the Chute, the Belgian survived but was injured. Hunt won again on a very wet track as he held off home favorite Mario Andretti in a Lotus 78 to win by two seconds.
Andretti had already accumulated enough points to win the Drivers' Championship before coming to Watkins Glen. Mechanical problems forced Andretti to retire early from the race, which was won by Carlos Reutemann in a Ferrari T3.
But by this time, Watkins Glen had deteriorated from its earlier splendor. Drivers began complaining about the bumpy track surface, and the teams and press were concerned over facilities, the level of security and rowdy fans.
Even though the Bog was made into a parking lot in , things still did not improve sufficiently over the years.
