Way to make new members feel welcome Hammer....

Welcome Bingoburnie, always good to have more McLaren and Button fans around here (Lacking of late, the fans not the team) and hope you stick around for a while; as per the dates, nothing is set in stone yet and confirmed, but I'm pretty sure that these dates are the one's that are staying, particularly at the start of the season I.E Shanghai. Although with this fancy 21+ race preliminary calender I am less confident than I normally would be that the dates for next years races are 100%.

Short answer they probably won't change dates for Shanghai but we can't be sure.

we both have British passports
we used cibt visas to process this
you have to actually send them your passports and they stick a visa on a full page
the only things we paid extra for were firstly to cover for replacement passports if lost which cost £28 secure mail £17.94 all the rest is standard costs as far as i can make out

My visa for China was just under £100, so don't know why they've charged you that much. Are you going through an intermediary that's ripping you off?
