Thibaut Courtois, a goalkeeper for Real Madrid and Belgium, and ex-Formula 1 driver Roberto Merhi are apparently planning to start a team in Spanish Formula 4 for the upcoming season.

The squad, popularly rumored to have been named ‘TC Racing’ after the football star’s initials in Spain, may even make its junior series debut the following year.

Courtois, a well-known sim racer and avid motorsports fan, has frequently been observed in the Formula 1 paddock in the past, including at Monaco earlier this season.

According to reports, Thibaut Courtois plans to give young drivers an opportunity in motorsport.

According to numerous rumors in Spain, Courtois is forming the team alongside the former Marussia driver Merhi, who, according to AS, will serve as an advisor.

In this year’s series, five three-race rounds will be held on Spanish circuits including the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya and Jerez, as well as in Portugal’s Estoril and Belgium’s Spa-Francorchamps.

“You’ve just been overtaken by a professional goalkeeper!” George Russell joked in the background.

Courtois has visited Williams more recently as well. He has also been included in a Real Madrid video where Carlos Sainz, a fervent Madridista, plays against Courtois on FIFA.
