Well, there's always a big dollop of luck needed in TAR since it only takes one bad cabbie to ruin your race. But, so far, the Patrol seems to be very skillful since no matter what the challenge is, they seem to be able to move to front of pack every time.
If they had decided to use a FF at this point, I'd consider it their first mistake in a well played game. They've already won a bunch of prizes and proven that they can easily move to front after the bunching points. Showing up as the third team at a FF would be a wildly unnecessary risk for a team that doesn't need it. At this point they need to make certain they don't do anything stupid that would keep them out of the final leg. They don't need another trip to Cabo for finishing first in yet another leg.
