Calado, currently competing in GP2, enjoyed a strong showing in last month's young driver test at Silverstone with Force India, and now appears poised to potentially increase his role with the team.
The 24-year-old came into the season as favourite to land the GP2 crown, but following a poor start to the campaign currently finds himself fifth, 45 points behind leader Stefano Coletti from Italy.
Calado, however, has improved considerably, scoring most points from the previous four rounds to at least give himself a shot of the title going into the final four events.
Now in his second season in GP2 after finishing fifth overall last year, Calado would naturally love nothing more than to join Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button, Paul Di Resta and Max Chilton in F1.
"Doing the Force India test was fantastic. It was amazing to get in a Formula One car," said Calado, speaking to Sky Sports F1.
"I was getting evaluated by the team and I'd like to say I did a fantastic job!
"I got to grips with it quicker than I expected actually and was able to give good feedback.
"I can't hide we're having discussions with Force India. My manager Nicolas Todt is talking to them now, and it's hopefully likely that things will happen in the near future."
Whilst it appears unlikely Calado will land a race seat for 2014, it is possible he could be given a reserve role, which would at least result in a number of Friday practice outings.
Given his performance in the young driver test, Calado added: "Driving away from the track at Silverstone I was confident, I was pretty happy.
"Then within a few days the team were ringing me up asking for more information, maybe a sim(ulator) work and things like that.
"So building up a relationship with the team now and hopefully we can do some more going forward."
