No, the only reason professional footballers, for example, are UK tax payers is because they have to turn up each week in the UK. Everyone pays as little tax as possible, although many sportsmen and women and extremely generous with time and money.
Cars bore me bit its got to be Mr Hamilton hasn`t it ?

I voted Jo Pavey. I thought she was more deserving than the multi millionaires ahead of her.

Lewis Hamilton, multimillionaire, tax exile, lives in Switzerland. I cant quite get my head around the act of driving a car is quite the same in terms of sport as those who run, jump, swim, box and exert and stretch their bodies to the limit in order to achieve success in other energetic achievements. just saying.

Hamilton does gym work to achieve physical form to race though. Is it the same thing? I guess so. F1 holds no interest for me. GP1, 2 & 3 do though.
How did Froche get into final 10 when BBC does not air Boxing?
Why does a BBC panel select the final 10?
Winner managed maybe?

Normally hate this sort of posts, so sorry, but:
F1 isn't sport
LH is a bit of a whinger who does little for the image of the UK, and as a tax avoider less for the UK itself
The word Personality should be removed from the title. Andy Murray won it for goodness sake
The BBC over-promote this show/award, it is as meaningless as Football Manager of The Year (ask Brendan Rogers)
I really don't like Sue Barker (is that relevant?)
