Aussies losing interest in F1?

According to a survey conducted in Australia, a disappointing number of people watched the Australian Grand Prix on television. The Roy Morgan Sports Monitor found that 4.9 million Australians aged 14 and over watched the race broadcast, the lowest audience of all Melbourne's big sporting events.

The race attracted less than half the 10 million-plus audiences of the Melbourne Cup and Australian Open men's tennis final, and was well down on the nine million who watched the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony.

Only 565,000 Australians watched all of the race, compared to almost one million who watched all of the next day's AFL match between Collingwood and Adelaide.
