Sunday 17th August 1975
Vittorio Brambilla took his first Formula One win at the Austrian Grand Prix for March. The race was shortened by heavy rain, meaning that only half points were awarded. It was Brambilla’s only Formula One win in his seven-year Grand Prix career. He took a 27-second win over British driver James Hunt in his Hesketh 308. Eight seconds further back was the Shadow DN5 of British driver Tom Pryce in the first of just two podiums in his abbreviated career.
