After all he has raced in F1, IndyCar and WEC.

However, I don't think that is just the issue with awarding Super License points. I think the issue may also arise because IndyCar does not come under the auspices of the FIA.

ACCUS, the Automobile Competition Committee for the United States, is an umbrella organization of the various racing sanctioning bodies in the United States, which includes IndyCar, IMSA and NASCAR. ACCUS is the official liaison of those sanctioning bodies to the FIA. Maybe IndyCar needs closer affiliation with the FIA?
I was thinking the same when reading.
You could ask the question - why should the FIA award recognition to any non-FIA series? To do so would de-incentivise entrants to their own series'

Perhaps because drivers moving between series would be good for spectator interest in motor racing? Mansell to CART, Andrettis to F1, Rosberg, Rahal, Villeneuve from Atlantic to F1, Rossi and Grosjean from F1 to Indycar: I think those were all good for racing in general.

Not forgetting Jacques' move. That was one of the biggest stories in the history of motor racing.

Or JPM for that matter. True he had already won the FIA F3000 when he went over to America prior to his F1 adventure, but it no doubt made him a better driver going over there
