From the "Medicine in Motor Sport" textbook, produced by the FIA:

"As concerns the FIA, the absolute contraindications to issuance of a standard competition license are:

  • treated or untreated epilepsy with behavioural effects at any point during the previous 10 years;
  • any cardiovascular problem with a risk of sudden death;
  • monocular vision for less than 5 years (in case of monocular vision for more than 5 years, the FIA Medical Commission may consider an application based on the eye test described in Article 1.3 of Appendix A in the International Sporting Code).

Other health problems may require assessment by a body approved by the driver’s ASN."
