I heard a presentation from two of the current drivers of real F1 cars from the period that were asked to drive in the film. They had some stories to tell! If you read the credits to Rush carefully, there are two kinds of drivers listed. The "Precision Drivers" are the ones driving "mules" or mock-up cars that looked the part but were not as fast. These are the ones driving all the spins and crashes. The "F1 Drivers" are the people driving their own cars, which are real F1 cars from the period. One of the drivers I know was driving the John Player Special Lotus. The F1 drivers (and F3 drivers) are listed in the Transportation Department!

Then ,1976 has been rather a politic affair and under the table stories, rather than fights on the track.
They profited that 1976 was faraway in time, to rewrite and deliver a complete new scenario.
the F1 GP reports from period mags doesn 't show any thrilling moments , for most of the races.
