Heir to a tiling business, Andrea mainly races in sportscars or GT's, including Italian GT's and the GT Open Series. In 2015, he is in the Blancpain series, but has also appeared in touring cars. Montermini - who is possibly the shortest ever Grand Prix driver at 5 foot 2 inches tall (certainly he's the shortest driver in the modern era where height was recorded) - was a race winner in Formula Boxer, Italian Formula 3 and International Formula 3000 but was hampered by a lack of money. Andrea also raced in America and Champ Car in 1993 before having a few years of struggle in Formula 1 with underfunded teams.
