Default asphalt 8 trigger problem

I was having problems while playing asphalt 8, the triggers don't work if I mash them down for gas, but if I pump them, or go just before full throttle, them the car would go, buttons work normally in other games, but the gas trigger seems defective, have you guys had he same problem?, I starting to think this might be a hardware issue, and not a software issue, but if you guys are having the same issue, please post it here !
