According to the latest update in Appendix L of the FIA's International Sporting Code, the governing body now recognises both series as a means for drivers to earn superlicence points in a bid to reach to F1.

The champion in Formula E will receive 40 points, the same number of points as their counterparts in GP2, European F3, WEC (LMP1 only), IndyCar and the future Formula 2 championship.

However, the second and third placed drivers in the all-electric series will get only 30 and 20 respectively - the same as European F3, WEC and IndyCar but less than GP2 or Formula 2.

Likewise, the rest of the top 10 in Formula E will earn a decreasing number of points on the basis of 10, 8, 6, 4, 3, 2, 1 from fourth down to 10th in the standings.

The FIA has also added the Australian-based Supercars series in the list of eligible series to earn superlicence points, albeit behind other tin-top series such as WTCC and DTM.

While the champion in WTCC and DTM earns 15 points, the Supercars winner will get 13, with second awarded 11 and third awarded nine.

As per the other touring car championships, only the top eight drivers earn superlicense points, which are awarded in the order 6, 4, 3, 2, 1 from fourth to eighth.

Why Formula E's Valencia fiasco undermines engineering talent

FIA president Jean Todt wanted more Formula E coverage in the media, and got his wish when the opening Valencia E-Prix proved farcical. Despite attempts to spin the race as teams failing to get their sums right, Formula E and its governing body cannot escape blame - especially when trying to get teams to commit long-term.
