    blown off

    i like to know the meaning of "Blown off" in this sentence.
    "If you were Fernando Alonso, however, it was a day of disaster. Blown off by Hamilton, he slipped way back after his first pit stop, had several off-course excursions".

    i was reading arround, and i know some of the meanings (ignore, Not keep an appointment) but it doesnt match with the meaning of the main sentence.

    thks in advance

    Was surpassed, as in speed; left behind; i.e., Hamilton was faster.
