Spanish GP: Vettel leads final practice in Barcelona

Sebastian Vettel is so good he only needs a single lap to put his car on top of the time charts and that was the case Saturday morning as the F1 cars completed final practice ahead of qualifying in Barcelona.

His car had problems early in the session and were fixed with a few minutes to go. Vettel went out and went straight to the top with a 1m21.707s on his only flying lap of the morning.

Until then, Vettel's teammate Mark Webber had been in total command.

Mercedes' Michael Schumacher led the way for a while and ended the session third – albeit a full 1.3s off Vettel's pace.

The McLarens were only fourth and fifth, ahead of Nico Rosberg in the second Mercedes, Sauber's Kamui Kobayashi and Renault's Vitaly Petrov.
