I ask this because there are some truly hardcore people out there, and if you get nothing for being last place (think Forza 2's online credits, dead last is dead nothing, and if you can't win, you won't get anywhere forever) then that adds a LOT of stress to the game.
Don't worry, you get FP regardless of the place you finish in, as long as you don't retire. You even get points even if you DNF.
Granted, the higher your finishing position, the more points you get, but I've seen that it's also depending on the amount of people you raced against, the more people, the more points given.
