Common sense would dictate that the driver would give the white car driver a few seconds to speed up and get past the bus or slow down and let him change lanes.
Might have lost him them in a blind spot. The closer a car gets to the front of the bus the less likely that the driver can see them easily. It's a blind spot and it's much worse on the right. That's why they have those large convex mirrors on large trucks.
If you are going to pass a truck or bus always pass on the left and don't waste any time getting by them assuming that it's not congested.
This of course assumes US roads, if you drive on the wrong side of the road in your country it would be reversed :P
