A young Italian businessman, Mantovani made a good impression in both sports and touring cars in 1952, finishing sixth in the Bari GP (second in class) in a Ferrari, and second in the GT class of the Pescara 12 Hours in a Lancia Aurelia.

This led him to buy a Maserati, and he was soon assimilated into the works team, sharing a 2-litre sports car with Fangio to take third in the 1953 Targa Florio, and winning the Circuit of Caserta race. This led to a drive in that year's Italian GP, though he had to hand his car over to Musso in the race.

In 1954 he became a good, solid team member who could be relied upon to look after the car and bring it home, taking fifth places in the German and Swiss Grands Prix, and thirds in both the Syracuse and Rome non-championship events.

Retained in the squad for 1955, Sergio was involved in a practice crash at the Valentine GP in Turin in which he sustained serious leg injuries which resulted in the amputation of one limb above the knee.

His racing career was over, but he then became a member of the Italian Sporting Commission, thus retaining his links with the sport.
