Vettel Sets Pace in Formula One Testing

MONTMELO, Spain (AP MONTMELO, Spain (AP) -- Sebastian Vettel set the fastest time for the Formula One preseason as testing concluded on Friday.
Vettel's lap of 1 minute, 16.221 seconds around the Barcelona-Catalunya Circuit beat Ferrari teammate Charles Leclerc's pace-setting time from the previous day.
But Ferrari was left with doubts entering the season after an electrical issue brought Vettel's car to a stop, forcing it to be hauled back to the garage. The setback came two days after Vettel veered off course and crashed into the protective barriers for causes still being investigated by his team.
Also worrying for Ferrari, defending champion Lewis Hamilton finally showed some speed in his Mercedes by clocking the second-best time at just 0.003 seconds behind Vettel.
