Jochen graduated to Formula One with Surtees after strong showings in the European Touring Car Championship - he was champion in 1972 - and Formula Two in which he was runner-up to Jean-Pierre Jarier in 1973 before making his Formula One debut with Surtees. He ran a full campaign for Surtees in 1974 and then moved to McLaren in 1975, where he was an excellent number two to Emerson Fittipaldi and won the Spanish Grand Prix. However, he then dropped into a subordinate role after James Hunt arrived in 1976, as he could not match the Englishman's pace on the track. Jochen moved to ATS in 1978, but broke a leg in a test at Silverstone.
He drove for Arrows in 1979-80, had a year off in 1981 and returned for an uncompetitive season with March in 1982, after which he concentrated on sports cars, winning the Le Mans 24 Hours for Mercedes in 1989. The following year he acted as tutor to the company's young stars, including Michael Schumacher, before retiring at the end of 1991.
