Drinfeld's lemma on the fundamental groups of schemes in characteristic $p>0$ plays a fundamental role in the construction of the "automorphic to Galois" Langlands correspondence in positive characteristic, as in the work of V. Lafforgue. We describe a corresponding statement in which the roles of lisse etale sheaves and constructible sheaves are instead played by overconvergent $F$-isocrystals and arithmetic $\mathcal{D}$-modules, which is needed in order to transpose Lafforgue's argument to $p$-adic coefficients.

Joint work with Daxin Xu (Morningside Center of Mathematics).
