*CANBERRA - The Australian Medical Association has attacked the Federal Government's decision to allow tobacco advertising at next January's Formula One Grand Prix in Melbourne, although strictly limited to what's necessary "to meet existing international sponsorship contracts for teams or drivers"; all ads must carry a federal health warning similar to that on cigarette packs; all regular tobacco advertising is banned in Australia.
