† The German Grand Prix was boycotted by all top riders due to insufficient safety measures and counted as an ordinary international event.
Points were awarded to the top six finishers in each race. Only the four best races counted in the Sidecars, 125cc and 250cc, while in the 350cc and 500cc championships, the five best results were counted.
