Having obtained a super license, how long does one retain it?
Button has a super license despite not having raced this year. Which suggests that Nasr, Rosberg and Gutierrez also retain licenses - if they have filed in the form and paid the fee.
Seems it is 5 starts in the last year, or 15 starts in the last 3 years. If neither of those are met then there must be sufficient points earned in other championships during the last 3 years.
You'd imagine that a lot of people would be able to get a super license on pretty short notice, given previously having had one, and currently racing in another top series.
e.g. Formula E (Piquet, d'Ambrosio, Prost, Buemi, di Grassi, Heidfeld, Vergne, Ma, Gutierrez), IndyCar (Sato, Chilton, Bourdais, Montoya), WEC (Webber, Hartley, Piquet, Prost, Senna, Vergne, Di Grassi).
