We investigate the simple Lie algebra of type F4 over an algebraically closed field of characteristic three. In this article, we show that the first Ermolaev algebra makes an appearance as a maximal subalgebra of F4 and prove this using old results of Kuznetsov, Kostrikin, and Ostrik about graded depth-one simple Lie algebras over fields of characteristic three.
