The month of May is well and truly underway and that only means one thing for the world of motorsport, it is Indy500 month.

However, before ‘the big one’ gets started there was the small matter of the Sonsio Grand Prix to complete at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Road Course. After 85 laps it was Alex Palou who took victory for the first time in a proper race this season.

The Spaniard leapfrogged everyone in the Championship as Palou leads the IndyCar standings going into the Indy500.

Will Power held his second place in the Championship standings with a solid second place in the Sonsio Grand Prix. But he is 12 points behind Palou as it stands.

Scott Dixon and Colton Herta find themselves joint on points in third and fourth in the Championship. Dixon finished fourth on the weekend, with Herta down in seventh place.

Twenty points back from Dixon and Herta is Swedish driver Felix Rosenqvist. The Meyer Shark Racing driver got a tenth-place finish to hold his fifth place in the standings.

Scott McLaughlin was only 29th in the standings a few weeks ago. However, he is now sixth overall and joint on points with Pato O’Ward, who is seventh overall in the standings.

Kyle Kirkwood sits in eighth in the standings only two points behind Palou. Two points back of Kirkwood is Christian Lundgaard who finds himself in ninth. With Alexander Rossi rounding out the top ten in the Championship.
