And among the next McLaren-championed names could be Facu Regalia, according to the Italiaracing publication.

It is reported the 21-year-old Argentine, who finished runner-up in the GP3 championship this year behind 2014 Toro Rosso debutant Daniil Kvyat, was in Woking this week.

At McLaren's state-of-the-art headquarters, Regalia reportedly tried McLaren's Formula One simulator, including the layouts for the Abu Dhabi and Silverstone circuits.

Italiaracing said Regalia also had talks with Force India this year.
