Anyway, I would hate to see F1 drivers ending up on that show. Everything is done in poor taste, the editing is trashy, and generally it's quite a boring show from the small amount of clips I've seen of it.

He seems to have moved around a fair bit, although towards the end of his life he spent quite a bit of his time in Portugal (mainly because he would not be disturbed as much).
On a more modern note, I believe that most of the drivers on the grid are now officially resident in Monaco or Switzerland (for tax purposes) - I do recall that Glock once did a piece on the BBC's website about the Monaco GP from the flat he owns there (where he pointed to the neighbouring apartment block and pointed out where a number of other drivers have properties), and IIRC Chandhok mentioned that Bruno Senna put him up during the Monaco GP weekend.
That said, there are a few drivers who live in the UK because their teams are based there - Webber lives in Aylesbury, whilst Hulkenberg IIRC still lives in the UK (he did move to the UK when he got the job with Williams, and I believe that he stayed on when he switched to Force India).

I forget who it was though I'm tempted to say Alguersuari because I remember him having decks and a load of DJ equipment there, but he didn't drive until 2009. Maybe Liuzzi?
