    It's still mind blowing that the entire point of the super license, is to prevent people buying their way in, but the guy with the license is the one paying for his seat, while the talented guy sits on the back burner.
    You can pay your way to a pretty good team in F2 to get decent results. Its well documented. It's actually much harder to do well in Indycar.

    Didn't Latifi lead the F2 championship for awhile? Or was sitting in the top 3?
    yes, then he finished 5th, 9th, 2nd in his 3 years in F2. Which is more than enough points to get his superlicense

    I believe he was second in f2 but has gotten crushed by his team mates in f1.

    My favourite thing about this super license debacle is how many points are given to WEC Hypercar series. 1st place gets 30 points then 24, 20, and 16 points for fourth. And guess how many entries there were for 2022? Just four cars. Quite literally last place gets you 16 SL points in a closed wheel racing championship. That is more points than getting 4th in Indy car.

    And to be fair some of the races did have more than 4 cars, since Perguet joined in round 4 with two cars and Glickenhaus pulled their one car out out after 4 rounds. But that one round did feature SIX cars! Pretty crazy. Also silly since drivers get full points despite 3 of them sharing the car through the event. Two strong drivers could carry a weaker third.

    Definitely a fair system.

    Yes the system is extremely flawed but I dont have a problem with WEC being awarded higher points either. WEC team isnt one that you can easily buy a seat for, they are all (mostly) manufacturer backed teams. No team is going to give up an important seat just because you pay.

    F2 is the easiest to buy a seat for and still be "competitive".
