Mario Andretti continued his recent form with pole position and Jacques Laffite's Ligier springing a surprise, beating Niki Lauda to second, however Lauda was unable to take part in the race due to a broken rib. At the start, Andretti took the lead with Laffite following. Laffite gave chase to Andretti in the early stages but had to pit with a deflating tyre, leaving Andretti to romp to victory with Carlos Reutemann second. Hunt inherited third but retired with a misfire, giving it to John Watson until he lost places due to a spin, leaving Jody Scheckter to take the final spot on the podium.
The British Williams Grand Prix Engineering team made their Grand Prix debut by entering a single March 761 chassis for Belgian driver Patrick Nève.Note: Only the top five positions are included for both sets of standings.
