### Polinomial: distribute to greatest common factor

Hello, assuming I have a polinomial like this:

sage: var('x, y')
(x, y)
sage: y = 2*x^2 + x^3 + 10*x^4


is there a way to get it simplified applying the distributive property on the greatest common factor?
In this case, the output should be this:

y = x^2 * ( 2 + x + 10*x^2 )


Thank you!
