Tuesday 30-October-2007 11:01

With Lewis Hamilton announcing he's moving to Switzerland (although not for the tax breaks), PF1 decided to take a look at which drivers live where...

And while Monaco still ranks as the favourite place for the drivers to set up home, Switzerland is fast coming in at number two tied with England, which is where most of the teams are based.

MONACO
* Jenson Button resides in the principality of Monaco, and also has properties in the UK and Bahrain.
* Nico Rosberg spent much of his youth in Monaco with his family, and still lives in the Principality.
* Alex Wurz also lives in Monaco.
* David Coulthard has resided for some time in the tax haven principality of Monaco.
* Felipe Massa and his lovely lady live in Monaco.
* Giancarl Fisichella and his brood have a spot in Monaco.


SWITZERLAND
* 2007 F1 World Champion Kimi Raikkonen lives in Switzerland with his wife Jenni Dahlman, a Finnish model and former Miss Scandinavia.
* Fernando Alonso owns a house near Lake Geneva in Switzerland but he also has a spot in Oxford, England.
* Lewis Hamilton is making his way to Switzerland in order to be able to use a public restroom without being bothered for an autograph.

FINLAND
* Renault rookie Heikki Kovalainen hasn't moved far from home as he still lives in Suomussalmi, Finland.
