MONTMELO, Spain (AP) Williams and Ferrari are poised to make a good start to the Formula One season after both finished winter testing with another strong showing on Sunday.

Valtteri Bottas steered his Williams to the fastest time on the last of 12 days of preseason tests, with Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel right behind him at the Barcelona-Catalunya circuit.

Bottas clocked an early flying lap of 1 minute, 23.063 seconds. The Finnish driver and teammate Felipe Massa have consistently been among the fastest performers with both in the top two times through the final four days of testing.
