Matteo Chinosi began his kart racing career at an early age of nine. In 2002 he won the International Winter Cup at Lonato (Brescia), the Torneo Industrie at San Pancrazio (Parma) and he finished third in the Italian Open Masters final standings in the ICA-J class.
Chinosi began his single-seater racing car career by driving in the Italian Formula Renault Championship with Prema Powerteam in 2005. He finished 25th in the standings with six points. The following season, Chinosi competed in both the Formula Renault 2.0 Italy and Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 championships for RP Motorsport. He finished ninth in the Italian series standings, taking nine points-scoring positions in fourteen races, including a podium in the first race at Hockenheim. In the Eurocup, he was a guest driver at Misano.
In 2007, Chinosi stepped up to the ATS Formel 3 Cup with the Ombra Racing team. He finished sixth in the standings after taking four podium places. Also he appeared as a guest driver at Monza in British Formula Three. Chinosi remained in the series for 2008 with Ombra Racing. He finished fifth in the standings with two wins at Hockenheim and the Nürburgring. Again, he was a guest driver at Monza in British Formula Three where he gained a pole position.
Chinosi moved to Prema Powerteam and the Formula 3 Euro Series in 2009 but left the series pointless after the Zandvoort round. During the same season he finished eleventh in the 2009 Masters of Formula 3 at Zandvoort.
