|【 The Six-Wheeled Sensation Hits Japan 】 Tyrrell's P34 was the first and only six-wheeled machine in Formula One history and its exploits during the 1976 season, including a 1-2 finish at the Swedish GP, proved that the design was not just a novelty. The car also took part in the first Japanese GP, which was held at Fuji Speedway. Jody Scheckter and Patrick Depailler qualified for the race in 5th and 13th places respectively, but on the rain-soaked race day Depailler put on an impressive show by overtaking the field to briefly lead. He unfortunately suffered a tire puncture as the rain stopped and the track dried, but recovered to take 2nd place behind Mario Andretti's Lotus in a thrilling race.
