The 1971 Formula One season was the 22nd FIA Formula One season. It featured the 22nd World Championship of Drivers, the 14th International Cup for F1 Manufacturers and several non-championship Formula One races. The World Championship season commenced on March 6 and ended on October 3 after eleven races.

Tyrrell Racing added reliability to the flashes of blinding speed showed by their new car at the end of 1970. Jackie Stewart took advantage of that and won six races and the championship, with his young teammate François Cevert winning the season finale and jumping to third in the final standings.
