I would suggest a different view of "leave the robot on the red spot".

The red decking on the bridge is a shared, interaction zone.
It seems difficult to arrange for two robots to both satisfy the Vehicle
Sharing (red decking) scoring criterion simulaneously.
Probably the first robot vehicle to the spot is in a better position to
score, but that isn't certain.

It feels like a "competitive" situation to me.

I know that teams can choose to go for the Target Spot instead of Vehicle
Sharing, to avoid the interaction region. That presents a different set of
obstacles, and is an example of teams being able to choose what move they
make.
