Abstract: We show that a useful condition of Seitz on finite groups of Lie type over fields of order $ q>4$ is often satisfied when $ q$ is $ 2$ or $ 3$. We also observe that various consequences of the Seitz condition, established by Seitz and Cline, Parshall, and Scott when $ q>4$, also hold when $ q$ is $ 3$ or $ 4$.
