Some people jump when panic. As someone said above, if things go wrong fast, you're usually taken over by your reactions and not by your decisions.

There was a bad accident some years ago at my local track where a guy on a big bike got his throttle wide open stuck on the main straight. Obviously, he realized only when he was already in the braking zone, so there was not time to think. He jumped off the bike. He was ok, but the bike hit a corner worker and the poor guy died at the hospital.
The rational thing would have been to cut off the engine and brake, but he didn't have time to think .
