A 1m24.953s moves Vettel to the top. Just Ferrari and Mercedes circulating at the moment, but both are getting some early laps in to make a solid start to 2017 testing.

Finishing races is important, but racing is more important.

I'm really not going to worry too much about times during the 1st test.
I will be happy if all the cars can do a seriously good amount of laps without issues, especially Honda with their new "philosophy" design, and then during the 2nd test turn up with performance related times and work.
Last thing I want to see are cars parked in the garage because engines are braking left right and center.

Fastest time last year was 1:22:810 and that was after all 4 days.

So yes, they are pretty quick already
