As he was not yet aware of the severity of the damage already sustained at 6:03 and his division gunnery had been disrupted by the torpedo alert and turns, I think he was right continuing his mission without loosing time behind a retreating enemy under smoke.

And he still ventured into the Atlantic, for a 4 days journey to Brest (thus aborting the mission for BS anyway - but dettaching Prinz Eugen).
