Is there any way to make the ubuntu-budgie top panel auto hide ?
I like that desktop environnement a lot, but there is a lot of lost screen space when an application is maximized (an app like chromium).

With the budgie 10.x series there is not a way to autohide the top-panel.
If vertical screen estate is your key issue then I would suggest you checkout
budgie-pixel-saver-applet. It is available in the 17.04 backports repository. For non CSD apps - the top-bar in maximized apps like chromium are combined with the top-panel.
Backports can be enabled through the welcome application - it is in the Recommendations part of the app.
You can now change position, make it hide automatically, etc.
