Will Power on Indianapolis GP pole, Grosjean 10th


Team Penske lives in sharing. After taking Scott McLaughlin and then Josef Newgarden to the forefront of IndyCar in the spring of 2021, it’s the turn of the house’s third driver, Will Power, to stand out.

The Australian recorded his 64th pole position on Friday May 13 on the Indianapolis infield. What bring him a little closer to the record held by Mario Andretti (67 poles). “I feel so privileged to be right behind Mario,” commented Will Power. It’s something I could never have imagined when I started my motorsport career. »

The winner of the 2018 Indianapolis 500 Miles thus becomes the fifth different pole in as many meetings in 2022. He beat outgoing champion Alex Palou (Chip Ganassi Racing) and his teammate Josef Newgarden. At the wheel of a Dallara from the modest team Ed Carpenter Racing, Conor Daly amazed the paddock with the fourth best time. The first ranked rookie is Callum Illott (Juncos Hollinger Racing, 7th).

The French did not manage to stand out. Author of a pole converted into second position the previous year at the Indianapolis Grand Prix, Romain Grosjean (Andretti) settled for 10th time. Simon Pagenaud (Meyer Shank Racing) is 20th. The Indianapolis GP will start on Saturday May 14 at 10 p.m. French time.
