The race pulled an impressive 456,000 viewers (multichannels usually grab about 300,000 for their best daily performer) and peaked at 610,000. The pre-race was 227,000.
That makes it the #1 rated program on multichannels so far this year.
ONE also topped the multichannels with an equally-impressive 6.8% share.
The race was wrapped in controversy with a post-race argument developing between Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber.
TEN also got good numbers for The Biggest Loser last night at 957,000 viewers, pipped by The Force (1.06m)/ Border Security (998,000) but first in the key demos.
Of course, as we’re in non-ratings it’s arguable that Seven and Nine weren’t throwing full first-run schedules against the FIA, but it’s an encouraging result nonetheless.
Seven won the night.
