Can I pick multiple teams for the bonus points?
What if I feel the podium will have 2 Mercedes or Ferrari drivers? will I miss the 3-point bonus because I picked drivers from 3 different teams?
And for the 1-bonus point can I pick a set of 3 random drivers who I think will finish in that order (not necessarily my main drivers, but middle of the table?)

Or will everything be calculated based on my team of 3 drivers only?

Yes. So will everyone else.

You can pick any three drivers, as long as they are from different teams.

Yes. The only change for you is to put them in finishing order. Everything else is on my plate.
