Sunday 11th February 1973
At the Brazilian Grand Prix at Interlagos, Emerson Fittipaldi took top honors as Ronnie Peterson had the misfortune of losing a wheel on lap 6 after taking pole for that race. Jackie Stewart in his Tyrrell was second 13.5 seconds back and Denny Hulme finished third and also set fastest lap of the race. Stewart made a spirited drive up from 8th on the grid to finish as well as he did. Arturo Mezaro also had a good drive to finish 4th, 1 lap down, but he started from 17th place on the grid.
