1970 Dutch Grand Prix

The 1970 Dutch Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held at Zandvoort on June 21, 1970. It was race 5 of 13 in both the 1970 World Championship of Drivers and the 1970 International Cup for Formula One Manufacturers.

The race was won by Lotus-Ford driver Jochen Rindt in his new monocoque-chassis Type 72, which had only raced twice before (but in a different spec); and this came 3 years after the 72's predecessor; DFV-debutant Type 49 in 1967 won first time out at exactly the same track with Jim Clark driving. Rindt racing the 72 without the complex anti-squat and anti-dive features, which the Austrian had never believed in, effortlessly dominated the practice and race putting little pressure on the car and not even having to use the maximum road width or line. Chapman persisted with anti-squat and dive on John Miles' 72 which was fifth on the first lap and proved difficult to pass. Miles finally being passed by Beltoise on lap 49 and Surtees, 4 laps from the flag. The race saw the significant debut of Clay Regazzoni in the second Ferrari, the Italian marque looking truly competitive for the first time in years. However the race was marred by the fatal accident of British driver Piers Courage driving the Frank Williams-entered De Tomaso-Ford.
