First-time-out winners

By Graham Duxbury @TheRealDux


It's not often that a brand-new Formula One car wins on debut. Famously, the Mercedes-Benz team won the 1954 French Grand Prix with their advanced “streamliner”, the W196 driven, by world Champion Juan Manuel Fangio.

The feat was repeated in 1968 when Jim Clark drove Colin Chapman’s superb Lotus 49 to victory on debut in the Dutch GP.

Jody Scheckter helped Walter Wolf’s new team win first-time-out in Argentina in January 1977 – the F1 season opener. Jody’s beautiful Harvey Postlewaite-designed Wolf WR1 (pictured) was the team's first self-constructed car.

Jody would win again in Monaco and in Canada with the WR1 to finish runner-up to Niki Lauda in the ’77 World Championship.

Scheckter finished second behind Lauda’s Ferrari in the ’77 SA GP at Kyalami – the third GP of the season - remembered for the tragic accident that claimed the lives of Tom Pryce and a young race marshal.
