That's because the kernel is only doing what you tell it to do.  The
matheamtica kernel is single threaded.  You will only 'get a result'
when the entire function has been evaluated.

You can get the kernel to Print[] the results as it maps like:

((Print[#]; #)&@f[#]) & /@ Range[10]

but this still won't allow you to use the results in the kernel until
the entire Map call has ended.

(unless, of course, you use another mathematica kernel).
