Fittipaldi opens fire with Brazilian GP win


Emerson Fittipaldi won his home Grand Prix on this day in 1974, and collected his first victory with McLaren. The Brazilian is flanked on the Interlagos podium by Clay Regazzoni and Jacky Ickx. It would be a banner year for Emmo who would go on to clinch his second world title.
