Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel signed off from Formula One's pre-season testing on Thursday with the fastest lap yet around Barcelona's Circuit de Catalunya.
"We are still working on some things for the first race and it's not really possible to make any predictions based on the performance of the other teams, because everyone is running a different program," he added.
That said, his time was more than a second quicker than anyone else and eclipsed the previous best, since the Barcelona circuit was reconfigured in 2007, of 1:18.047 set on Wednesday by Red Bull's Australian Daniel Ricciardo.
All the teams did more than 100 laps, with Vettel also completing a race simulation and doing 188 - the most of any driver and one more than Red Bull's Dutch youngster Max Verstappen.
Danish driver Kevin Magnussen was second fastest on supersoft tires with a time of 1:18.360 while France's Pierre Gasly was third on the timesheets in the Honda-powered Toro Rosso and completed an impressive 169 laps.
