Now I ain't a particularly skilled driver, but I've flagged enough
corners to say, I just ain't buyin' this:

Right the first time, Brett.  He just picked the wrong corner to pass
in.  Going around the outside set him up to early-apex the right-hander,
and rather than slow down, he goes wide left entering it, which lets him
keep his momentum.  But that sets him up to early-apex the following
left-hander, and by now he's run out of talent.  So, brake HARD, break
the ass end loose, and power out.  He SHOULD have just followed the
camera car (which took a good line through the sequence) all the way
through, and powered around him on track-out of the final turn.
