In the eighth and final instalment of NBA 2K Sundays with Thibaut Courtois, Thibaut challenged Pierre Gasly of the Alpha Tauri F1 Racing Team, with Courtois playing as the Washington Wizards and Gasly playing as the Los Angeles Lakers. It was Courtois who claimed a 76-70 victory over Gasly in a hard-fought game which remained closely competitive until the final seconds.  In addition to 2K gameplay, the two talked at length about the rise of virtual gaming during the hiatus, their passion for the NBA and life as a Formula One driver.

During the current suspension of the 2019-20 NBA season, which initially saw a record 48 primetime games scheduled in Europe on Saturdays and Sundays, Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has been hosting a weekly series of NBA2K20 games against different European sports personalities, celebrities and influencers as a part of the #NBATogether initiative. Before the NBA2K match-up against Gasly, Courtois competed for the third time in the Formula One Virtual Grand Prix Series, finished 13th around the Virtual Monaco track, racing alongside Antonio Giovinazzi for Alfa Romeo.
