  • Japanese Grand Prix
  • Hunt wins but two die as Villeneuve crashes
  • October 23, 1977: Twelve months earlier James Hunt had secured the world championship with third place in a nail- biting end to the season. A year on and he won the final race in Japan, but with the title already Niki Lauda's it was a slightly hollow victory

  • Canadian Grand Prix
  • Scheckter wins in Lauda's absence
  • October 9, 1977: Jody Scheckter won the Canadian Grand Prix, but with the world title secured by Niki Lauda seven days earlier, it was a hollow victory, especially given Lauda's absence at Mosport Park

  • South African Grand Prix
  • Pryce tragedy overshadows Lauda victory
  • March 5, 1977: Niki Lauda recorded his first victory since his horrific crash at the Nürburgring the previous summer, but the South African Grand Prix was overshadowed by the tragic death of the highly-rated young Welshman Tom Pryce

  • Argentine Grand Prix
  • Scheckter wins courtesy of Wolf's reliability
  • January 9, 1977: Jody Scheckter, who had left Tyrrell in the close season, won the Argentine Grand Prix on his debut for Wolf as James Hunt and Niki Lauda, the leading drivers in 1976, both failed to make a mark
