These questions didn't pop into my head until I got home. I was hungry.

Okay here we go.
It's known currently as an 'Aston Martin' though there is a slight difference that it uses a 'customer' Mercedes engine. The team is owned by a Canadian that has a 51%? holding in AM sales cars shares and his son drives one of the two F1 cars.
The car you see there is almost for sure a display vehicle without the real engine and a lot of plastic parts.
The team has been rebranded from its previous names like Racing Point and Force India which it was called before and so far has had just one race win in the guise of Racing Point. The current drivers are Lance Stroll (son of the owner) and Seb Vettel a 4 times F1 champ.
