Speculation, but I'd guess it's possibly to do with the incorporation of the Union Jack (or Union Flag...) and the perceived stigma of the British Empire, perhaps even harking back to the days when the country was used as a prison colony. For a reason I do not know the flag is retained, but the national colours may well be a statement of its independence from the old Empire.

You're right, there is a Monster logo on the drivers helmets, still none of these lovely grid girls though.

Speculation, but I'd guess it's possibly to do with the incorporation of the Union Jack (or Union Flag...) and the perceived stigma of the British Empire, perhaps even harking back to the days when the country was used as a prison colony. For a reason I do not know the flag is retained, but the national colours may well be a statement of its independence from the old Empire.

Because we can (only joking). But a more official answer is & quote:

"It was not until April 19, 1984, that green and gold were officially declared Australia's national sports colours by the then Governor-General, Sir Ninian Stephen. The combination was, however, used in the jumpers, blazers and caps of the Australian cricket team to tour England in 1899, but was not ratified by the Australian Cricket Board until 1908. It was also worn by the Australian Olympic team in that year, while the Australian Rugby League adopted the colours in 1928. Green and gold were the popular choice to represent Australia internationally because the colours closely resembled those of our national emblem the golden wattle. The 1984 proclamation settled a long dispute as to whether the National Colours should be green or blue together with the gold. Blue and gold nevertheless retains heraldic importance within Australia. For example, these colours are seen in the Australian Coat of Arms where the wreath which subtends the Commonwealth star is blue and gold (these are the known as the ‘livery colours’ of the Arms). Green and gold is also represented on the Coat of Arms by the Wattle which is an ornamental accessory to the shield (interestingly, the Wattle does not form part of the Armorial Bearings). Blue and gold is also represented in the Order of Australia awards where the medal itself is suspended from a ribbon showing golden Wattle motifs on a blue background."
