I have the PC Demo (You can download it from the Australian Codemasters Site) it has 2 laps of Adelaide.
From watching the real thing the other weekend, and listening to the commentators, the only thing out of whack are the speeds. Strange thing though is that all the gearchanges and what gear you're in a what part of the track is bang on.
2nd gear through the first part of the track is correct, change to 6th just before the little bend on the back straight is correct too, but you reach around 280 instead of 240ish like the real thing. 2nd gear through the hairpin at the end of the straight is fine, and you hit the limiter in 4th just before the final hairpin onto the start/finish straight which is also correct.
Only a couple of other gripes -
1) Computer opponents rarely (If ever) let you through, even if you clearly have right of way
2) They also leave tyre smoke all around the track from lock ups
3) Stuff falls off the car too easily too. How many times have you seen the rear wing fall off a car from giving it a gentle tap in the rear bumper?
Apart from these small problems, I love it! Can't wait to buy it... And a wheel and pedal set!
