McLaren M23 Cosworth V8 F1 winner Brazilian GP 1974 World Champion Emerson Fittipaldi

At the end of the 1973 Formula 1 season Emerson Fittipaldi left John Player Special Team Lotus and joined McLaren. This proved a wise decision as Colin ChapmanÛs new Lotus 76 design for 1974 was to be a disaster. McLaren on the other hand offered Gordon CoppuckÛs modern but proven M23 and in the background Teddy Meyer had landed a very big fish by securing large-scale sponsorship both from Marlboro and Texaco. Stability and financial resources for developing the M23 urgently needed in the battle against the favored Scuderia Ferrari and their 312B3.

Ferrari had completely withdrawn from endurance racing to fully concentrate on their Formula 1 Team so it became obvious that Clay Regazzoni was the man to beat for Emerson Fittipaldi in 1974. And indeed by mid-season the Brazilian enjoyed a small lead over the Swiss but when they arrived at Watkins Glen for the final they were both equal at 52 points. In the heat battle of the US Grand Prix Ferrari suffered massive tire problems and scored no points at all while Fittipaldi finished fourth and won the title by 3 points.
