Ferraris 2016 car is capable of closing the gap to Mercedes on the evidence of winter testing, according to Sebastian Vettel. The new SF16-H proved the quickest car on five of the eight days of Barcelona testing, with Vettel and team-mate Kimi Raikkonen posting the four fastest lap times of the winter.Ferrari enjoyed a mini renaissance in 2015, winning three races after going through the previous season without a victory, but Mercedes still dominated the world championship and ended the year with their 12th one-two race finish in Abu Dhabi. But, armed with a new car which is more revolutionary than most, Vettel believes they are in better shape heading to the first race in Melbourne on March 20.We have to see if this car can be a winner, but I think that the first impression was good and everything we have built is positive, said Vettel after he ended the winter on top of the timesheet.

I think we did a good job during the last season and now I think that the new car can close the gap even more, but we have to be patient a little bit longer, for a couple of weeks at least.Raikkonen, whose results have underwhelmed since his return to Ferrari in 2014, ended pre-season with the outright fastest time after lapping fractionally quicker than Vettel on the ultrasoft tyres.

(STATS) -- Finding elbow room near the top of the FCS has been more difficult than usual this season.Unbeaten Sam Houston State as well as Jacksonville State, Eastern Washington and North Dakota State have represented the top four in some order for a remarkable eight straight weeks.While the first set of Top 10 rankings from the NCAA Division I FCS selection committee created great discussion and some criticism last week -- and a new set of rankings will be out Thursday -- each of those four teams has reason to believe it should be No. 1.Add in unbeaten The Citadel and James Madison and just about everyone is in agreement of the top six teams. Those six have combined for a mere four losses -- Jacksonville States and James Madisons came against FBS opponents and Eastern Washingtons came against North Dakota State. Only North Dakota States came from outside the Top 10, but barely with No. 11 South Dakota State.So when fans feel their favorite team isnt getting their due, they should remember there are some other pretty darn good teams in the FCS.The 24-team playoffs that begin in two weeks are highly anticipated.---=FCS GAME OF THE WEEK=The Matchup: No. 14 Charleston Southern (5-3, 2-1 Big South) at No. 25 Liberty (6-3, 4-0)Kickoff: 3:30 p.m. ET at Williams Stadium (19,200) in Lynchburg StadiumTelevision: ESPN3Series: Liberty leads 19-4 (most recent meeting: Charleston Southern won 31-24 at home on Nov. 14, 2015)The Skinny: Liberty has clinched a share of a record eighth Big South title and seeks its first outright title since 2008 as well as the conferences automatic bid to the FCS playoffs.

The host Flames are 5-0 since freshman Stephen Calvert has become the starting quarterback. The defense, led by DE Juwan Wells and LB Nick Newman, is coming off a shutout of Presbyterian. The game matches the leading FCS kick returners: CSUs Darius Hammond (32.3 ypr) and Libertys Frankie Hickson (31.9 ypr).Prediction: Liberty is 14-2 in November games under coach Turner Gill.
