Example 50.10.6. Lemma 50.10.5 is false in positive characteristic. The de Rham complex of $\mathbf{A}^1_ k = \mathop{\mathrm{Spec}}(k[x])$ over a field $k$ looks like a direct sum

Hence if the characteristic of $k$ is $p > 0$, then we see that both $H^0_{dR}(\mathbf{A}^1_ k/k)$ and $H^1_{dR}(\mathbf{A}^1_ k/k)$ are infinite dimensional over $k$.
